TOMS EYEWEAR HELPS RESTORE...
Sight restoration often allows two people to return to work or school: the person who was blind and the caretaker who was helping them with everyday tasks.

With 20/20 vision, students are more likely to attend and succeed in school, creating opportunities for financial success later in life.
More than half of TOMS-supported sight services help women and girls. Two-thirds of people who are blind are female, and girls are often held from school or work to care for visually impaired family members.
With restored sight, people are able to go to work and school, help at home, walk independently and rejoin their communities.
